What a long, hard, and eventually gratifying weekend. I’d have to say, one of the best races we’ve collectively put on to date – I dare say in the history of Lafayette. A race of this magnitude takes at least 6 months of preparation – from DOT permission, insurance coverage for riders and property, financing, dependable equipment to run the event, course safety, parking constraints, hydration supplies, food supplies, shade, fans, referee accommodations, race advertisement, online registration, support trucks, moto escorts, road guards, medical preparedness, police placement, portalets, cash payouts – I could go on forever. Everyone involved from financing to volunteering knows who they are and can also congratulate themselves for being a part of such a successful event. I could not have done it without you. Each year the event becomes more popular and more gratifying – the more I would like to see the race grow. I love competitive cycling and I am glad to see the city and businesses embrace this type of event. My bigger mission is to get more of the public involved in cycling – nut that’s another post altogether. Congratulations to Adam, Jed, Tony, and Nick on the top 3 GC placements. Once again – thanks everyone, I hope to see you on the road!
